First published in 1853 amidst rumors that Thomas Jefferson fathered children with one of his slaves, Clotel is a fictional chronicle of one such child. After Jefferson’s death, his mistress and her two daughters are auctioned. One daughter, Clotel, is purchased by a white man from Virginia who impregnates her. Despite the promise of marriage, Clotel is instead sold to another man and separated from her daughter. After escaping from the slave dealer, Clotel returns to Virginia to reunite with her daughter – now a slave in her father’s house.
"JD Jackson's narration is unwavering and profoundly impactful...Jackson presents Clotel in a manner that grips the listener." - AudioFile Magazine
"Narrator J.D. Jackson has a wonderfully clear, deep voice, and he does a terrific job with the formal language indicative of the time." - School Library Journal (audio review)
